Thought I'd drop in and say hi. I don't know how active this forum is, but here I am. I thought it would be nice to try and find some Aussie weight loss-ers to talk with.

So hello, here's my story. I'm a 30 year old female Canadian living in Oz. Once upon a time I lost all my weight when I was 24, doing a very silly (read dangerous/unsustainable diet) with lots of exercising. I felt so brave and good about myself I came on a little working holiday here in Australia. I met a cute Aussie boy, with a cute accent, and a cute butt and best yet he was a wonderful person so I promptly fell cutely in lurve. Fast foreword 6 years, I'm still in Australia, still in lurve and sadly no longer feeling so brave and good about myself.

For many reasons I put on all the weight I lost and much more. At my highest I was around 127 kg but over the last year I've managed to come down to 95 kg. I grew up calculating weight in pounds so to me 95 kgs sounds pretty good until I realize oh right even though it's two digits it's still 209 lbs. So I've still got more to lose. But now a days I try not to stress on what the scale says. Instead I measure my goals in how good I look in clothes (and out), how easy it is for me to get up and be active, how I can fit into those rattan cafe chairs and not worry about it sticking to my butt when I stand. You know the little things.

So that's me.

I am also new, only joining last night. I started my weight loss at 93.4kg so I know where you are coming from. I am wanting to lose around 25kg.

Good luck with it all!
